A special Your Workplace edition on education wouldn’t be complete without talking to the educators. With a global pandemic affecting how we work, learn and play, Canada’s (and the world’s) institutions of higher learning are looking at the future of education as well as the challenges, successes and upcoming endeavors needed to make education as strong as it can be. The goal: providing the best future workforce possible.
Your Workplace editor and deputy publisher Joel Kranc spoke with four heads of Canadian universities: Benoit-Antoine Bacon, President and Vice-Chancellor with Carleton University; Graham Carr, President and Vice-Chancellor with Concordia University; Rhonda Lenton, President and Vice- Chancellor with York University; and Jill Scott, Provost and Vice-President, Academic Affairs with University of Ottawa. The following is an edited version of that roundtable on-screen discussion. Visit yourworkplace.ca to watch the roundtable recording and hear first hand from these agile academic professionals.
